Midwife Crisis

Season 4, Episode 6

Martin and Louisa's new midwife don't exactly see eye-to-eye when it comes to baby care. In fact, Martin is dismissive of her profession.

The doc's cognitive behavioral exercises to overcome his blood phobia have been paying off; he's able to draw blood from P.C. Penhale without filching. Martin visits aunt Joan at her farm and breaks the news that he intends to become a surgeon in London again. She's supportive, but urges him to tell Louisa. He misses his chance when Louisa overhears Edith congratulating him that he got the job.

Martin and midwife Molly have their final stand-off when Louisa develops a temperature, which Molly tries to sooth with herbal remedies. The doctor is furious when he discovers this because he believes that Molly's homespun ideas are seriously endangering Louisa's health.

Louisa has left, and Martin has begun to question what keeps him in Cornwall. It's certainly not his relentlessly annoying patients. On a visit to the hospital, Martin is stunned to meet Edith, his old girlfriend from medical school days who is now a top-ranking doctor with a flourishing private practice.
